Is it possible to actually get charged with D.U.I. even if I was't drinking or doing drugs?
I work 3rd shift and one night I had a panic attack and got sent home from work. A friend gave me some of her medicine and told me to take it and lay down. I got home around 2am. I went sraight to sleep. The next day I got up 5 minutes before time to leave to get my daughter from school, so I threw on my house coat and ran out the door taking my toy chiwawa with me. My dog was acting funny and I tried making her behave.. Finally I gaot to a four way stop near the school and when pulling off my dog ran up my neck, scratching me along the way, and I ran off the side of the road. When I got back on the road I was pulled over, but not by the police.....it was a game warden. I tried doin the roadside test but I have to have surgery on my knee and I have never been able to walk straight.
The short answer is yes, you can be charged. In Florida, If the officer feels that he can prove you were driving...

My license is suspended for a DUI in west Virginia but I live in south carolina.
I was arrested for two DUIs in West Virginia before I turned 21. I served my jail sentence and enough time has passed that I can get my license back if I pay my fines, take DUI classes, and have a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle. However, I moved to south carolina before I completed any of these things and the DUI laws are different here. How should I go about getting my license back?
It's likely that the punishment will stay the same, but you contact a lawyer in South Carolina.

It's likely that the new state will find out about your suspended licence.
DUAC showing up on employer background checks
I was convicted of DUAC. I thought this would mean I would not have a criminal record but it is showing up when potential employers run a background check. Is this an error?
Likely no. Conduct a live scan on yourself to see what shows up.
1st DUI Nolie Prosequi 2nd won at the motor vehicle hearing. Case is over now Told to play guilty Can I apply again for hearing
I wanted to go to trial because I knew that I would win. Lawyer talked me into pled guilty and I was not given a copy, but I signed some papers. I am a register nursing student and I asked him many times if my case can be expunged if I lost my case, he said yes. On 5/28/ 2015, after signing the paper lawyer gave me a number to call to get information on applying for expunge. As you know their is no expunge on DUI charge, which I didn't know it at the time or I would have went to trial. My case was first at the DUI court in Rock hill, and after my case was over I learned that reason it was moved to York County, General Sessions is because I was charged with 2nd DUI, when my 1st on 2010 was Nolie Prosequi. Discovery video didn't have anything on me, it was only bits hear and their.

Information about getting a special provisional driver's license.
1st DUI charge was dropped. After my 2nd DUI, I received from Department of motor vehicles that I cannot drive for 12 months and cannot get a provisional license. I had filed with office of motor vehicle for hearing and won and I was driving with go anywhere driver's license. I am in process of seeing about filing for PCR. My own attorney destroyed my case. I know I will get what I am asking. Even after I win my case I am assuming I cannot apply to the office of motor vehicle hearing again? I am also assuming that both of my DUI charge will stay in my driving record for so many years even if the case was dismissed and I have to wait 12 months and go through programs before getting my license back? In mean time is their anything I could apply to the court, or to the motor hearing?
